Karly and Steve are my new deadlock heroes — isn't Karly's two-tone updo just gorgeous? The reader submissions gave us lots of other amazing shots, too, like skull-patterned flask garters, a groom in shining armor, an air plant bouquet, and a sidewalk chalked save-the-date.

Karly's bouquet also doesn't disappoint: fabric flowers, lace, ruffled burlap, tiny pearls… I die. Photo by Allebach Photography

  1. cute.cute.cute. I hope we can see a feautre on Karly and Steve, their dreads are BEAUTIFUL and I loved the bouquet.
    Also the feathered bodice made me swoon a little, her bouquet is seriously lovely too

  2. I'm pretty sure y'all posted that father daughter dance once before, which leads me to my question… how do you keep track of all the archived content you have? I mean, other than tags that we (your readers) can access). In-house, how do you manage it all? It seems daunting!

    • I started putting together the Montage in July 2011 and hadn't ever seen it. The video was posted in Sept. 2011. I imagine there are a lot of similar videos out there. Either way, I think for something like clickies, we just rely on our memories and if something is a dupe, then at least new readers may not have seen it. 🙂

  3. Karly and Steve are beautiful and amazing people. It was such an honor to be a part of their big day! You have no idea what these crazy kids went through to pull this off. A few days before their wedding our area was hit by a hurricane and they had disaster after disaster because of it. But they pulled it off and had an amazing wedding that truely reflected their love for one another and their amazing kids. I LOVE THEM!:)
